Psalm 108 Names of God Bible (NOG)

Psalm 108[a]

A song; a psalm by David.

My heart is confident, O Elohim.
    I want to sing and make music even with my soul.[b]
Wake up, harp and lyre!
    I want to wake up at dawn.
I want to give thanks to you among the people, O Yahweh.
    I want to make music to praise you among the nations
because your mercy is higher than the heavens.
    Your truth reaches the skies.

May you be honored above the heavens, O Elohim.
    Let your glory extend over the whole earth.

Save us with your powerful hand, and answer us
    so that those who are dear to you may be rescued.

Elohim has promised the following through his holiness:
    “I will triumph!
        I will divide Shechem.
        I will measure the valley of Succoth.
        Gilead is mine.
        Manasseh is mine.
        Ephraim is the helmet on my head.
        Judah is my scepter.
        Moab is my washtub.
        I will throw my shoe over Edom.
        I will shout in triumph over Philistia.”

10 Who will bring me into the fortified city?
    Who will lead me to Edom?
11 Isn’t it you, O Elohim, who rejected us?
    Isn’t it you, O Elohim, who refused to accompany our armies?

12 Give us help against the enemy
    because human assistance is worthless.
13 With Elohim we will display great strength.
    He will trample our enemies.

Psalm 108 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 108[a]

A song. A psalm of David.

My heart, O God, is steadfast;
    I will sing and make music with all my soul.
Awake, harp and lyre!
    I will awaken the dawn.
I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
    I will sing of you among the peoples.
For great is your love, higher than the heavens;
    your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
    let your glory be over all the earth.

Save us and help us with your right hand,
    that those you love may be delivered.
God has spoken from his sanctuary:
    “In triumph I will parcel out Shechem
    and measure off the Valley of Sukkoth.
Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine;
    Ephraim is my helmet,
    Judah is my scepter.
Moab is my washbasin,
    on Edom I toss my sandal;
    over Philistia I shout in triumph.”

10 Who will bring me to the fortified city?
    Who will lead me to Edom?
11 Is it not you, God, you who have rejected us
    and no longer go out with our armies?
12 Give us aid against the enemy,
    for human help is worthless.
13 With God we will gain the victory,
    and he will trample down our enemies.
